Tales of Momoko: Idle and Run Cycle

I’ve been recently animating my OC, Murakami Momoko, for my game that I’m working on. I’m planning to procedurally generate her fox tails, so it’s just her here. Her feet are definitely bigger in the running animation, which has an easy solution called, “Make the idle animation’s feet larger”.

I have a Ko-fi:: https://ko-fi.com/sadayoshientertainment :: and a Redbubble for if you want my non-fanart on your stuff:: https://redbubble.com/people/sada-tainment

Kabuki Kitsune

A digital remastering of two traditional drawings featuring my original character, Murakami Momoko, a kitsune samurai, performing a kabuki pose. She is holding her peach blossom-themed spear vertically next to her and is wearing samurai armor with a blue top and a red bottom. She has a fox head and legs, furry hands, and three long tails curling behind her. She is standing on one leg with one hand outstretched. Across from her is a landscape scene with a stylized sakura tree and a rock. Grassy ground beneath both the landscape and Momoko is connected with a thin, looping strip of color.

I’ve pretty much finished with this, methinks. All that’d be left would be shading, but shading is hard and I am tired and I have been looking at this for a long time.

I’ve added this piece to my Redbubble – https://www.redbubble.com/shop/ap/103187263, if you’d like her to be on your stuff and things. Or you can take a look at my Ko-fi – https://ko-fi.com/sadayoshientertainment, if you wish.

Momoko – Dynamic

I drew my original character, Murakami Momoko the kitsune samurai, recently. It’s also the first time I’ve drawn that spear both all together and from an angle, so that’s neat.

I do drawings in traditional media for holidays and birthdays, because my grandparents struggle with connecting things that I do digitally with me. Then again, they always seem surprised of the traditional stuff, too, so it’d probably just be easier to switch fully so that my shaky hands are less of a constant detriment.

Tales of Momoko: Spear, Animations

I’ve been doing some conceptualizing for the game that I’m definitely going to finish some time don’t worry about it. I’ve just about got the spear to look the way I want; it probably needs a few tweaks, but I’ll cross that bridge when it comes. I also did some sketches of my OC, Momoko, to parse how she’ll move about in game a little bit.

Tales of Momoko: Shielding, UI Notes

This sketch page has more notes for my game along with a decent sketch of my OC, Momoko the kitsune samurai. The UI is coming along, conceptually, so I’ve turned to gameplay now: specifically, defending.

My research indicates that the Japanese didn’t “wield” shields in the European sense; rather, they “wore” or carried and deployed them, which meant their hands were free for weapons that required two hands.

Tales of Momoko: Spear, Name

Some more character design work on my new original character, Momoko the kitsune Samurai. This sketch page has got a bit of everything: an armored outfit for her that I’ll need to refine, some spear concepts that are coming along, a simplified look for easier animating, and some notes on her name.

From what I, a half-Japanese man with only 2nd- and 3rd-hand knowledge of Japanese and Japanese culture, have researched: when kanji is used as part of a name or other word, it can generally be pronounced however you want it to be pronounced? I might be way off.

Tales of Momoko: Peach-fox

Here’s some more art of Momoko, my kitsune Samurai, cutting a peach with a spear. I did this in traditional media with pen and colored pencil. I did forget her gotdang fox tails, but that’s something easy to fix when I clean this digitally.

Character Design: Momoko

A character design sketch page of a new character for a thing I’m working on. Momoko is a Samurai kitsune, which is why I’ve been drawing foxes so much recently. This is the first time I’ve ever drawn her, so I’m still working on what she looks like.

I’ve got to hand it to furries, though; they’ve got the proportions down pat.
